Polyethers exhibit excellent rebound properties and, coupled with high impingment abrasion resistance, this makes them ideally suited for impact applications. Due to their low temperature performance, they maintain their dynamic properties better than other materials as their flex is less effective by cold conditions.
The chemical structure of Polyethers contain two carbons bonded to an oxygen atom. This makes the polymer more resistant to hydrolysis than Polycaprolactones and Polyethers. They are ideally suited to water based applications and provide excellent solutions in these environments. However, Polyethers do not exhibit the same chemical and oil resistance as the other two grades.
· Low temperature flexibility
· Excellent hydrolytic stability
· Excellent microbial resistance (in comparison to polyesters)
